Salmon fishing in Alaska

There is nothing better than fresh-from-the river Salmon!
Here I am (above) braving the cold for some delicious fresh fish.

It was absolutely breathtaking scenery!  The place we stayed "Eyak River Hideaway" was right on the Eyak River in Cordova, Alaska.  It rained most days, but I didn't expect it to be Hawaii anyway.

Here I am in the boat - Don and Sally are posing nearby- this was one of the only times it was sunny!

My good friend Lisa, on the left and Don and his son Jason Fileting the fish.

Look how happy I am not to constantly be in waders!

Awww look at the seals!  They float on their backs so they can crack shellfish on their tummies and suck out the deliciousness from the shells.

  2. Lou Lou! I'm so happy for how your business is taking off! Your Alaska trip looks amazing, I'm totally jealous. And by the way, those adorable animals are otters, not seals. :p

  3. Haha! You're right Brianna. Well, you can tell I definately didn't get a degree in zoology!
